    Unhappy china has made it ~
    so i went to a shop near my house to buy an iphone~n found a great deal.. i decided to buy it and in the end bought it ><

    So after a few weeks of using it~ i realize its not a genuine iphone 4s from apple~ and im a little disappointed~ but the reason i didnt realize it wasnt a genuine one, its becos there is totally no difference from the real one~ the touch screen is so sensitive which equals to the real one~ the functions and designed of the iphone resembles a original iphone~ but i only realise it wasnt genuinely from apple happens when i check the serial number from my iphone and went to the https://selfsolve.apple.com/agreementWarrantyDynamic.do to check the warranty... and yes! it says no such serial number is found in their data base... >< i triple check it already and confirm its not from apple...

    so im here to warn ppl out der to be careful while buying iphone products nw~ as china is really good in copying it untill it is totally the same =.=

    Specs:
    15" MBP, 2.5GHz i7, 750GB, 6770M 1GB, iPad 3, iPhone 4, custom PC
    Had a guy bring a Chinese imitation iPhone into work a few weeks back - and honestly, they look completely different.

    They use the screens similar to the Samsung Tocco (resistive i think) with that weird silver colour to them
    The silent button doesn't work, and in his case was bent
    Even though it was a "4S" the antenna was still on the top, and coloured white, not black
    Ran a modified version of the old Windows Handheld OS (not Windows Phone 7) edited to look like iOS
    It actually said "4S" on the back, while real iPhones only say "iPhone"
    The outer rim was made of plastic, not aluminium
    Box was made out of cheap photocopied cardboard

    Just a few things to look out for.

    13" Late 2011 MBP,iPad '3' 32gb,iPhone4 32gb
    Both my iPhone 4 and iPad were "Made in China", so to speak.

    Any chance you can take it back and tell them that they have sold you a fake?

    If you genuinely were lead to believe that it was real, when it's not, then you have grounds to return it, I would have thought.

    Well for my case everything works fine.. Even the camera and sound quality is as if an original one.. So today i decided to went bak to the shop to as about the situation , and was told that my phone is made in taiwan and therefore is sort of like a parelleled imported phone.. And its original..

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    So it's a counterfeit you think?

    If so, I'd take it to the nearest (real) Apple Store or call Apple about it and report the dealer. That's fraud, that is, if they sold it to you as a real iPhone.
